Give Me an Effing Break

In "The Devil's Dictionary," Ambrose Bierce offered this definition of "prayer,"
“Pray, v.: To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled on behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry is yet another in a long list of people who believe in the fantastical.

Good luck shouting at the heavens, my good man, but screw you for praying for Obama. He certainly doesn't need your help.

  1. The novel I'm currently reading - A Week In December, by Sebastian Faulks - begins with this quote by Dr. Thomas Szasz, psychiatrist and author of 'The Second Sin': "If you talk to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia." Pretty clear which side of the divide Rick Perry falls on.
